NEW CONTRACT: Warlock Unbound (Heart's Desire 4)

This is the last of the Heart's Desire series, and the Beckett boys:

Heart's Desire Book 4
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Length: Novel
Release Date:??

The last Beckett brother has cast his spell on her heart.

Daniel Beckett, the last unmated brother, finally casts the Beckett family mate spell. He and his wolf already know who that mate will be: the wilfull, stubborn, beautiful Kerry Andrews. He's only held off over fear of the dangers the Godwin warlocks have brought to her already, but his brothers are insistent. It's time, and all Daniel can hope for is that Kerry will allow him to protect her.

Kerry has been waiting patiently for Daniel to cast the mate spell, but the moment he does things start to go horribly wrong. A sleeper hex has been activated, and her life is in danger. So she does the only thing she can think of to save herself, running to Daniel's waiting arms.

Once the hex is removed Kerry finds a whole knew world to explore with her magical mate. But Arthur Godwin is lurking in the background to rip away their newfound happiness. Women are turning up dead...blond women who look just like Kerry.

Warning: This title contains explicit sex, graphic language, a growly wizard and the woman who loves him.

“So.” Kerry settled back on the sofa, looking anywhere but at him. Her cheeks were bright red. “We’re mates, huh?”

“Yup.” He cupped her cheek, shivering at the feel of her skin. Her scent was overwhelming him, so feminine and sweet he wanted to taste her. Now that he’d cast the spell he didn’t have to fight himself anymore. He could allow himself to treat her as she deserved, with care and affection.

She glanced at him out of the corner of her eye. “I thought you hated me.”

Daniel frowned as he thought of all the times they’d bickered, mostly about her safety. “You’re stubborn.”

She crossed her arms over her chest and glared at him. “You’re grouchy.”

“You needed to be safe.” If only she’d listened to him, she might have been here when the hex first manifested. All she’d had to do was remain in his home, under guard, twenty–four hours a day.

“You never asked. You ordered.” She leaned forward, poking him in the chest. “And no one orders me around, buddy.”

He took advantage of her nearness and grabbed hold, pulling her close enough to kiss. “Think. Again.” Daniel took her mouth, tasting her as he’d dreamed of doing since the first time he saw her, back when he was watching over Lana for Chris. She’d been in some stupid bridesmaid’s outfit for her twin’s wedding, and she’d been delectable. His wolf had practically drooled over her, clawing and scratching to get to her, but it hadn’t been the right time. He wanted his world, his family, safe before he brought her into it.

And she’d fought him even then, pushing him away to reach Gareth, who’d been wounded. Her hair had been a glorious mess and her dress was hiked up to her knees. She’d been brash, bold, and refused to back down no matter how much he growled at her to stay away for her own safety.

How could he not adore her? She was his match in every way.

I'm going to miss this series. Dusty suggested I create a new one, just about the Own (and not just Hecate's). What do you think?

I cant wait I love this series. Pam Patterson

Yes, please! Love this setting, and a new series about the Own sounds like it would be fun. Especially since the God's Own were said to be a tad strange :-) Stories about them would be one of the ones I shouldn't read in public for fear people would think I am crazy, because I am sitting and giggling away.

Dana Marie Bell said...

Yeah, they're definitely different. I have a couple of ideas for them, I just need to make sure they work in the world.

Fran K said...

Can't wait to read Daniel's book and from that snippet it's going to be a cracker. Yep, go with it. I love all your series, so I'm bound to enjoy The Own.

I definitely agree that you should continue the adventures in the world!! I love ALL your series and even if the books aren't about the Beckett brothers I think that the books would still be amazing!

Count me in as wanting more in this world. The Own would be great to read about.

If the Own talk to you, it would be great to read about them.

Why isn't 'Siren's Song' not avaiable in paperback when your other 'The Gray Court' series are?
